This is unlike anything you have ever seen!! Stereotypical for its day but extremely innovative and out right genius!! On BoingBoing.net, I spotted this remarkable 1932 Max Fleisher cartoon in which Betty Boop and pals are menaced by African 'savages', who morph into Louis Armstrong and members of his band.

They did a whole series of Betty Boop cartoons like this. One with Cab Calloway singing "St. James Infirmary." (LINK)

Take a look….(And make sure you watch it all the way through!!!)
